Over the last six years, we have been fortunate enough to have had some exceptionally talented MC’s overseeing the QED weekend – including performers, musicians, stand-ups and magicians. Each brought their own style, energy and exuberance to proceedings… and we’re very pleased to be able to announce that this year will be no exception, with Dave Alnwick taking up the MC mantle for QED 2017.
Dave is a magician and mentalist whose shows Mind Wizard and the Cult of Dave have wowed sell-out audiences at the Edinburgh Fringe. His performance as part of QED 2016’s Saturday night line-up introduced our QED audience to the Cult of Dave, many of whom also enthusiastically attended his workshop teaching basic magic techniques. We know our attendees will be as excited as we are to have Dave returning to the main stage for this year’s QED.
Last year, Dave was also part of a fascinating and entertaining panel on the ethics of magic, alongside fellow magicians Paul Zenon, Richard Wiseman and Eli Bosnick. If you missed it at the time, or if you simply want to relive the inevitable competitive one-upmanship that happens when you sit four magicians in front of an audience, the video is now live on our QED YouTube:
